FREE | Ages 8+

Travel around the world in this collection of traditional tales where women and girls shine. Forget your handsome prince and fairy-tale wedding - instead welcome strong, fierce females from Scotland, China, Armenia, Italy, Ecuador and Nigeria, all making their own destiny and defeating their monsters. Join Lari Don, author of more than 30 books for children and young people as she discusses where her inspiration for Fierce, Fearless and Free came from and how you can create your own story. Be the heroine or hero of your own destiny and tune in. Followed by a live Q&A with Vivian French.
